Acknowledgments

In the compilation of this bibliography a number of people have been of assistance to the author. Initial thanks must go to the late Professor T.G. Vallance of the Geology Department, Sydney University, who commented on the first draft in 1987 and subsequently suggested many additions and corrections. Though no great fan of the Reverend Clarke, Professor Vallance was nonetheless gracious in offering comments. Secondly, to David Williams of the Sydney Meteorological Bureau, who during 1990 supplied numerous references in relation to Clarke's various meteorological writings, identifying some 30 papers of which I was previously unaware, and corroborating a number I had tentatively included. Thirdly, to thank Ann Moyal, a longtime student of Clarke and transcriber of a large collection of his correspondence, who provided additional references during the process of preparing this material for publication. Thanks are also due to the staff of the Mitchell Library, Sydney, the Wollongong City Library, and the University of Wollongong Library, for the many instances of assistance in obtaining copies of Clarke's numerous publications and access to his extant papers; and Mrs K. von Tryst of the Royal Society of NSW for assistance in preparing the manuscript for publication.
